What You Will Experience In My Class I am inspired to help others find purpose and well-being through self discovery. Students are encouraged to work through a pain free range-of-motion in a practice of compassion, patience, and acceptance. I love connecting students to their most authentic self through breath, and body awareness. I assist students in embracing each pose with a deeper connection to breath by using clear verbal cues, gentle adjustments, and suggestions that invite curiosity. Variations are always given to establish a supportive space, including how to modify for injuries. My approach to yoga offers an experience that is balanced, and mindful while keeping it light hearted. I love supporting students in using the principles of yoga in everyday life. I hope to inspire inward transformation that can have an impact in the world.
Why Should You Join In I enjoy exploring movement, sharing philosophy, and uncovering the deeper teachings of yoga. I’ve gained a clear understanding of human kinetics, injury recovery, and prevention through studying Kinesiology at the University of British Columbia (BKin). Outside of teaching, I’m an avid snowboarder who’s in love with the outdoors! I strive to create inclusive classes so anyone can join in whether they’re a competitive athlete or a first time yogi.

My Favourite Quote “The only way that we can live, is if we grow. The only way that we can grow is if we change. The only way that we can change is if we learn. The only way we can learn is if we are exposed. And the only way that we can become exposed is if we throw ourselves out into the open. Do it. Throw yourself.” ― C. JoyBell C.
Why Should You Join In I have trained with a wide variety of teachers from many lineages and learned a great deal from each of them. I teach from my heart and believe that each of you can be guided to your potential through the teachings of yoga.

Besides finding freedom, finding joy is an intention that I will share with each of you.
